I figured out the measurements and son cut the pieces out of scrap 2x2.
MAILBOX DECORATION FINALLY UP!!!
We have had so much rain and then the cold weather moved in that I was afraid I might not get my mail box decorated.
This is the rustic snowman my son helped me put together. It was a lot of fun...particularly trying to figure out what to use to keep the paint from running in the wet season.
This was a lot of fun to make and I am so delighted that it turned out as well as it did!
I used white exterior latex house paint so it would withstand the rain!
I laid out the pieces as I went along to make sure I was getting the right shape.
I printed out a heart on the printer and used it as a pattern. And the penny and dime were the right size for the eyes and cheeks.
The accents...hearts were red nail polish with glitter glued on later; eyes and mouth were black nail polish that just happened to be at Dollar Tree at Halloween; cheeks were bright pink nail polish.
The hat was painted with Exterior black paint!
Added touches were from scrap pieces I had in my craft containers.
My son made a platform for it to sit on (painted black to blend with mailbox) and wired to the post.
I am really pleased with this project!
